I understand that everyone would like to see feature X implemented to a CFW, into a backup manager, or as a standalone program.
What I don't understand is why people think that harassing or complaining about the developers is going to get them what they want. This is not a "Retail" establishment where you can repeatedly complain and receive what you want.
If you want to complain, buy a dongle and complain to that specific team that they need to support or add a feature. If you pay for something and it doesn't work the way it should or is advertised then you have every right to be upset (After all that's the Retail way, right?).
If it's free, shut your trap and enjoy what you get. If you want to suggest a cool feature, that's fine and dandy. Just don't sound so demanding.
Have some sympathy for the people that take time out of their lives for something we all benefit from. Appreciate their efforts. Of course there are many people that do this, but the unfortunate part is that there are far too many that disrespect the people involved in the scene. I believe this is what is ruining it for everyone (although it could be that I'm way off).
It just seems like every time I click comments there's someone crying about a developer, or a piece of software, or whatever. It's really annoying when you are trying to read to comments for actual comments that relate to the topic (like if it works and how well) and you end up reading a flamewar.
No wonder all the good hackers and devs flee the scene. No wonder there are dongles coming out that cost money. It can't feel rewarding when people are pissing and moaning over features they didn't even have to do anything for. So if they aren't going to be happy with it being free, make them pay for it, right?
Maybe the scene will improve when we all realize that we're on the same side, instead of fighting with each other over foolishness.
Here's to a bright future for the ps3 scene, even if it is looking dim at the moment.
